Up until nine years ago, my husband took care of cooking dinner and grocery shopping for our family. Sure, I made bread and cookies, but dinner? No, thanks! Then we had a life-changing move and it made sense for me to take this on. I loved eating dinner, and now it was time I learned to cook it. Once I started, I was hooked.

Following recipes is an essential part of the way I cook. Learning to read a recipe correctly is a huge bonus. Once I started following the steps correctly, cooking became much easier.

Here’s what I recommend doing:

  • First, read the ingredient list and set all the items out.
  • Then, one by one, measure and prepare each item as indicated. For example, if the recipe calls for one cup carrots, shredded, that means to wash, trim and shred a few carrots before you start cooking. Then measure out one cup and put the measured amount in a small bowl. It may seem like a lot of extra dishes to clean, but trust me, it’s worth it.
  • Once all the ingredients are prepped, read through the whole recipe. Visualize each step and look up any terms that may be unclear.

Cooking is a life-long skill, and I encourage you to dig in. This week’s meal plans include delicious, fool-proof recipes, no matter your level of cooking experience.
